psnfss is designed to provide support for fonts found in PostScript
printers, actually. no more no less.
Which I suppose is why there is PSNFSS support for Lucida Bright and
Lucida New Math and Lucida Bright Expert and MathTime 1.1 and MathTime
What are we talking about here? The stuff in the PSNFSS package in LaTeX 2e?
The basic mechanism for providing support for `new' fonts? Or those huge
trees of TFM, VF and whatever files that are lying around in a different
part of the CTAN directory structure (I don't know where since I never
use that stuff).
Maybe its just in the definition of what PSNFSS is...

i feel sorry for people whose only interface to PostScript is via the
crippled route of ATM letting them rasterize Type1 fonts....
i feel sorry for people whose only way of dealing with preview is to
use a PS rasterizer :=)
